Calling Overseas with Google Voice

Post by mannino » Fri Dec 10, 2010 6:11 pm

Today,when I called overseas by using Google Voice, the phone rang a few times, then the call dropped. When I called local numbers, all worked quite well. What is the problem? In the past, I used Google Voice to call abroad and it always worked. Someone, please help and thanks. :?

I'd think that's more of a Google Voice problem than Ooma's wouldn't you think?

How can I contact Google Voice? Do you know whether there is a forum for Google Voice users like this one ? I have not been able to find one.Thanks again.

One way to test whether it is GV or Ooma is to try making the same calls using a cell phone or another landline. Since problems could happen sporadically, this may require data gathering through multiple tries.

Although rare, I've experienced GV voice quality issues when making calls with landline & cell so it maybe a good idea to see if you can repeat the same problem with a non Ooma line.
